How loony can they get?

If you're late to the latest outrage, here's the scoop, complete with photo. Apparently AARP is now a military-hatin' gay-lovin' organization. At least, that's what Karl Rove and his band of clowns (the same ones who were behind the Swift Vets) would have you believe. Now, I was once a member of AARP until I forgot to renew; my mother still is. I have my doubts that an ad like this (go look at the photo, it's unbelievable) will cause them to turn the other cheek. For one thing, many of its members are veterans who know better.

I'm a little unclear on the motivation to pick on the AARP. What do they have against the AARP that they'd want to be propagandizing them?

AARP has made no bones about opposing any Social Security reform. Therefore they are evil non-Administration-worshipers and must be demonized.

The NYT amplifies my statement above (more politely).
